Links: Autumn Canning and Winners

October 28, 2013(updated on April 24, 2023)

The last two weeks have been a whirlwind. There were two classes in Washington, D.C., four canning demos across three counties, and a visit from my sister and her touring partner Becca. I’ve logged about 1,000 miles on the road and have canned my way through a bushel of pears. It has been good and it has been intense. I have one more crazy weekend coming up, and then things are going to quiet down a bit (and I couldn’t be more pleased). Now, links!

  • Marisa, do you have any opinions on the food safety of direct canning the dried beans like that? If it works, it will be the answer to many, many of my prayers.

      1. Thanks for your reply Jeni.

        I have been planning to can some beans, using the NCHFP guidelines, but I would ten times rather not soak and pre-cook. So the instructions linked here (there are lots of oil-free versions online as well) are super enticing.

        But, I am also hyper-paranoid about food safety….

  • Thanks for linking, Marisa! I’m pretty excited about a healthy, ferment-full winter!
    And that pumpkin seed pesto looks amazing!
